Why Probiotics Are Essential For Gut Health, But May Not Fix Gut Issues

Over the last 2 weeks I spent some time writing on the pervasiveness of glyphosate and how it is causing untold damage in the world. I also wrote about how even though that seems like really bad news, there is reason to hope despite the doom and gloom prognostications. To continue on this series I want to bring it home by talking about the role of probiotics in all of this. As I’ve written previously, probiotics are essential for gut health. And while probiotics are essential for gut health, the truth of the matter is they’re only 1 part of the gut health puzzle. Especially as our world is overloaded with toxins like glyphosate. Today I’m going to talk about...

An Odd Connection Between Brain Health and Your Bottom (butt)

It may sound funny, or even a bit crude, but your bottom (in particular what comes out of it) could be tied to the health of your brain. Let me explain. Everyone poops. And when a person poops, their fecal matter is a container filled with microscopic clues about what’s going on inside of their body. One of the ways physicians can diagnose a gut-bacteria imbalance is when we have labs perform fecal analysis, commonly known as stool tests. Stool tests can be used to search for various clues about our health, but one of the main reasons we use them is to analyze what bacteria are alive and kicking (or, squirming) inside of our guts. With a stool test...

Could the Treatment For the Cold Live In Your Stomach?

  The reason I’m writing this article today is because inside my home a common virus is wreaking havoc. That’s right, it’s the middle of winter and we’ve been sucker-punched by the cold. The common cold may be a misnomer. While we say it’s common in daily life, every cold we come down sick with is a variation of a type of virus called the rhinovirus. Rhino (which means nose) viruses form the genesis of most colds you’ll ever have in your life. The Rhinovirus is also different than the flu (influenza) so a distinction needs to be made for those who conflate the two with each other. All that to be said, if you want to improve your ability...

These Symptoms May Mean You Suffer From A Medical Mystery

I have a “gut” feeling that you’re not going to like what you hear today. However, I think it’s important you learn about this problem so you can fix it. This is a problem that isn’t yet recognized by the mainstream medical community, so you might not get the help you need there, which is why I’ll tell you about it today. True, I didn’t learn about it in medical school, even though over 2,000 years ago the man called the father of medicine recognized the problem. (No, not me… I can’t time travel but if I could, he’s one guy I’d love to meet).  Let’s check out some of these symptoms and see if any of them sound familiar: ...

Probiotics May Help You Lose Weight?

  Did you know the size of your belly, thighs, and other parts of your body may be tied to the amount of bacteria in your body? The truth is, as we study probiotics more and more, we’ve come to find they might be directly linked to your weight.   And by getting probiotics into your body, you might be able to lose weight in a way you never have before.  Which is funny when you think about it...because 20 years ago it’s unlikely any of you reading this would have gone out of your way to get some extra bacteria in your diet. And you would surely have thought bacteria would make you gain weight, as opposed to helping you lose it.  But...
